Healthy eats continue to grow in Chittenden County

Posted: Updated:

A new store's grand opening is making healthy eating a little easier for residents in Essex Junction.

"There's always a niche for a store like this," said customer Bob Bates.

Healthy Ewe's owners say their mission is to encourage healthier habits. Kim and Shawn Lord said they have balanced their full-time jobs with the opening of their new health food store. "This has been a whirlwind but it's fun," said Kim, "it's exciting because it's something we both enjoy, definitely something we love."

Healthy Ewe aims to highlight the best of locally produced organic and natural foods -- helping customers achieve healthier lifestyles. Shoppers can return the favor by choosing to donate food or money to the local foodbank.

"We definitely want everybody to be happy and healthy," said Kim, "everybody's gotta do their part, this is just one little step."

Despite Vermonters preference for natural food, shoppers say there aren't enough stores like Healthy Ewe, and are always happy to have another option.

"My wife and I like natural products and organic products so I was very excited that a new place was going to be here," said customer Ed Lord.

Kim said you don't need to be nut on the path to healthy living. "Moderation, moderation is key or just get up off your couch and go for a walk or park in a further parking spot, just use the stairs instead of the elevator," she said, "really it's just that simple."

So whether you're just stopping in for the food -- or a nutritional consultation -- Healthy Ewe hopes to help every customer feel good inside and out.
